Do any of you have green thumbs?
What I want: A house filled with green plants like the striking minimalist photos I thumb past on Instagram.
The Reality: To be honest I’m really bad about caring for plants.
The few we do have around the house, a healthy money tree, a snake plant my parents gave me when we moved in, and a large Ivy that Dan trained to wrap around the speakers and windows of his “man cave”, are only alive and well thanks to Dan’s diligence.
Dan is good about watering them, pruning them, and positioning them in the right amount of sunlight
….and I’m good at admiring them and that’s about the extent of it.
So when my friend gifted me some home-grown mint this past weekend at book club brunch, I accepted it with excited determination.
I vowed to use the mint in a recipe, and to keep the darn thing alive.
I did one of those things already…
and it’s called Dark Chocolate Chia Pudding.
